NHS Digital also publishes a wide range of information about activity in the IAPT programme within the month.
The chart below shows the relative volumes of referrals that were received, entered treatment, ended, and finished a course of treatment in each month.
There is a degree of seasonality in these volumes, with slightly less activity around December. There is higher activity where there are more working days in the month such as July.
It is important to note that these numbers are not based on the same group of referrals as each other. A referral that was received in November 2019 did not necessarily enter treatment in this month, and is less likely again to have ended in the month. The number of referrals that finished a course of treatment is a subset of all referrals that ended in the month. In November 2019, 36.3% of referrals that ended had finished a course of IAPT treatment. Referrals can end having had different levels of contact with the service; these are shown in the chart below.
Each quarter, more detailed data are published about activity. The most recent quarterly data, Quarter 2 2019/203, can be found at: http://digital.nhs.uk/pubs/iaptsep19
